lobster mushroom question
    #11229595 - 10/11/09 11:17 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

my girlfriend went to a farmers market and they had lobster mushrooms she got so excited that she bought them. but upon my inspection they seem pretty sketchy, they are no doubt infected with hypomyces but my questions are...

is it normal for them to smell so bad? they smell like funky old mushrooms

and in all of the pictures ive observed (never found these wild) ive never seen that they have white hypomyces spots. in the mushrooms we have there are many spots.

i am wondering if they are past their prime or if these are normal characteristics for lobsters. thanks in advance for your replies, and i can post pics if needed.

In my experience hunting them in the wild I have come across ones that were whitish where they were covered by leaves and such. Mine never smelled bad though. Is the outer shell hard still?

The outside layer is usually harder almost like a shell.

Hypomyces basically creates a shell around the mushroom it is consuming. They are usually crust like. Maybe I am just not using the correct words to explain :shrug:

They have probably gone bad.  Lobster mushrooms don't smell like much when they are good.

If you cut them open they will probably look all nasty inside.

They don't stay good for long, you have to find them at just the right time.
